A Red Sox fan paid the ultimate price for his allegiance this weekend when he crossed paths with a Yankees fan in New Hampshire. Ivonne Hernandez, 43 years old and a Yankees fan, is charged with fatally running him over.
Hernandez, who was drinking at a Nashua, NH bar on Friday night, announced that she said she was a Yankees fan. The Boston Globe explains, "Nashua, 45 miles northwest of Boston, is Red Sox country."
A bartender says she got into a fight with some patrons that spilled outside. The group chanted "Yankees suck!" when they saw a Yankees sticker on Hernandez's car. The taunting apparently was too much for Hernandez; a prosecutor said, "She never braked, and she accelerated at a high speed for about 200 feet. She went directly at this group of people."
Matthew Beaudoin, 29, suffered massive head trauma and died at the hospital. Hernandez was charged with reckless second-degree murder and aggravated drunken driving.
